International spa and wellness design firm Studio Apostoli is realising a new private members’ spa in New York’s verdant Hudson Valley.

The studio is creating the Shin Rin Spa for Silo Ridge Field Club, an exclusive 850-acre gated community and private members’ club located two hours from New York City.

Intrinsic to Silo Ridge is an emphasis on the importance of fitness, wellness, recreation and a connection with nature. Members have access to a raft of leisure facilities – such as an 18-hole golf course, equestrian facilities, a movie theatre, an Olympic-sized ice rink, an organic garden, a farmer’s market and more.

A variety of outdoor adventures like hiking, rafting, water sports and fishing also ensure residents make the most of the scenic surroundings.

Studio Apostoli’s design brief for the spa echoes this emphasis on staying active and is also designed to help spa visitors rediscover nature and their own physical and spiritual wellness.

The spa will be divided into two main macro-areas; wellness and fitness, both of which will include simultaneous indoor and outdoor spaces.

Shin Rin Spa is being brought to life using light architecture, with the studio planning to create fluid stilted structures with large floor-to-ceiling windows and glass partitions that enhance and encourage contact with nature.

“The interior design will be contemporary and streamlined,” says Alberto Apostoli, founder of Studio Apostoli, “we plan to use natural materials and warm lighting to give the rooms a personal welcoming feeling.”

The wellness area will be anchored by a mixed spa equipped with glazed saunas overlooking the valley, sensory showers and hammams, together with different types of pools and relaxation areas.

To strengthen the connection with nature, the facility will be complete with five outdoor treatment cabins – which will complement four additional indoor suites.

Spa treatments will range from traditional oriental medicine rituals to massage, alongside meditation in a dedicated private cabin surrounded by greenery.

Fitness facilities, on the other hand, will be categorised into four different buildings: a gym, a yoga pavilion, a movement studio and a service area with changing facilities.

“Now at the end of the design phase, Shin Rin Spa will add to the club's concept of American wellness culture that embraces diverse disciplines and cultures in harmony with nature,” concluded Apostoli.

More about Silo Ridge
With 300 homes spread throughout five neighbourhoods, Silo Ridge is a scenic destination developed by Discovery Land Company. The private club is part of the company’s global network of 27 private branded lifestyle communities.

Owned by real estate entrepreneur Mike Meldman, Discovery Land Company communities are spread throughout North America, in addition to properties in Canada, Costa Rica, Portugal and the Caribbean.

Each location is carefully curated to reflect and respect its surroundings. The emphasis on fitness, wellness, recreation and reconnecting with nature is the ethos which underpins every community.
